Batch file

Batch files allow MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows users to write commands to run in order upon their execution for automating frequently performed tasks. For example, a batch file could be used to run frequently utilized commands, delete or move files, and other jobs.

One of the earliest batch files was the autoexec.bat, one that loaded each time computers with MS-DOS and early versions of Windows started. A simple batch file only requires a basic understanding of command line commands and does not need programming skills.
